Events & activities in Thurman
Christmas Baskets will be put together on Dec. 8 at 9 a.m. and they still need donations of baked goods or anything that would go with the theme of Christmas. Folks may drop off donations at the Thurman Town Hall on Dec. 7 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Those who would like to help out, contact Cheryl at 623-9718.
Santa Claus will be coming to town on Saturday, Dec. 15, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Thurman Town Hall for the annual Children’s Christmas Party. There will be delicious refreshments and arts and crafts to occupy the little ones while they wait for Santa and Mrs. Claus to arrive. Area children look forward to this event every year, and young and old have wonderful time. Once Santa arrives he visits with the children for a while then each child gets to sit on his lap to tell him what they most want to open on Christmas morning.
Every child will receive a gift from Santa at this free event. So dress your little ones in their holiday best and don’t forget your camera!
The Thurman quilting group holds their meetings from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. every Monday at the Town Hall. With the holidays approaching, what better time to take up a new hobby that the whole family could benefit from? So drop in and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea with these skilled members. To find out more, contact Myra at 623-2633.
